You wish to tone up, improve your health, lose some weight, and gain more flexibility. The last thing you want to do is pay a sign-up fee and monthly fees, drive to the gym and circle the parking lot looking for a spot, wait your turn for equipment, and then shower in a crowded and possibly dirty locker room. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Check out our quick guide to the best home workout equipment for a healthy lifestyle.
Practicing yoga on a hard floor can hurt your back, and a towel or carpet may slide under you as you do complex poses, so you should invest in a yoga mat. To prevent falling, high-quality mats have a double-sided, non-slip surface, as well as moisture-resistant technology that makes them easy to clean. We also like yoga mats with a strap that keeps the mat bundled when not in use.
The best jump ropes have a durable coating made of PVC-coated steel wire that is also flexible. Using four velcro binders, the rope can be adjusted to fit most adults with its nine-and-a-half-foot cable. You can make the most of your jump-rope workouts whether you’re doing intense training or just getting off the couch with the smooth swivel, the adjustable length, the comfortable handles, and the downloadable exercise manual.
You can exercise your arms, back, and abs using dumbbells if you have limited space. Dumbells can be used individually or together with a 46-inch connecting rod to create a barbell. Dumbbells are made from a mixture of iron powder and cement and are covered in polyurethane. The rods are coated with rubber, making them easier to hold when your hands are sweaty. Huep’s dumbbell set lets you adjust the weights between four and 55 pounds, so you can increase the intensity of your workout as you progress.
With stationary bikes, you can simulate a bicycle ride with varying resistance levels. Best bikes offer eight resistance settings, four handlebar positions, and eight height options. With its seat adjustments, the bike can accommodate a range of heights between 5.1 and 6.5 feet. The belt-drive system on such wheels is smoother and quieter than the traditional chain-drive systems and uses a 36-pound wheel. The bike displays your speed, distance, calories burned, and workout duration using the built-in LCD screen.
Suspension Training System
You can get a full-body workout using a high-quality suspension training system that fits inside a desk drawer. Generally, the set comes with two straps with anchors and loops to attach to a heating pipe or tree, as well as an anchoring system to attach the straps to a closed door. With the straps attached, you can perform a series of bodyweight exercises that use tension to work your muscles.
